The Game’s Afoot In New Enola Holmes 2 Stills
Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill unravel another juicy mystery in Netflix’s Enola Holmes sequel streaming this November
Ahead of its global release this November, Netflix has dropped some intriguing new images from the Enola Holmes sequel. Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, and Helena Bonham Carter are all returning for the hotly anticipated sequel, and today’s glimpse reveals a fresh look at all three as they all tackle another juicy mystery. The original film proved itself to be a runaway hit in 2020, with Bobby Brown’s performance being a highlight. So fans will be expecting the sequel to deliver in a big way. But can the movie hit the ground running and harness the brilliance of its talented cast? Let’s find out. Check out the images below.
Fresh off the triumph of solving her first case, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) follows in the footsteps of her famous brother, Sherlock (Henry Cavill), and opens her own agency — only to find that life as a female detective-for-hire isn’t as easy as it seems. Resigned to accepting the cold realities of adulthood, she is about to close shop when a penniless matchstick girl offers Enola her first official job… To find her missing sister. But this case proves to be far more puzzling than expected, as Enola is thrown into a dangerous new world — from London’s sinister factories and colorful music halls, to the highest echelons of society and 221B Baker Street itself. As the sparks of a deadly conspiracy ignite, Enola must call upon the help of friends — and Sherlock himself — to unravel her mystery. The game, it seems, has found its feet again!
THE GAME’S AFOOT
Millie Bobby Brown has cemented herself as one of the mainstays of pop culture following her debut in Stranger Things. But with her stint protecting the residents of Hawkins drawing to a close, it is wonderful to see her embracing new roles and realizing the scope of her potential. And in the original Enola Holmes, her on-screen rapport with co-star Henry Cavill was one of the highlights of the movie. So, it’s great to see them both back on the screen together.
Also returning for the sequel is Helena Bonham Carter as Enola’s mother Eudoria. The first movie established that the Holmes patriarch had many layers to her evasive persona, and it’s great to see her back in the fold for the sequel. But what escapades can we expect her to undertake in the upcoming sequel? Who knows, but the mystery makes for compelling viewing all the same. Either way, with Enola hurling herself back into another case alongside Cavill’s Sherlock, the Holmes’ are back in a big way. And I, for one, cannot wait to get my first look.
CAST & CREW
The sequel is directed by Harry Bradbeer, with a screenplay by Jack Thorne and a story by Harry Bradbeer & Jack Thorne. Along with new friends and foes, it stars Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, David Thewlis, Louis Partridge, Susan Wokoma, Adeel Akhtar, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, and Helena Bonham Carter.
Enola Holmes 2 will premiere on Netflix on November 4th.
